BO

shita(u)

meaning: yearn, adore, dear

慕情 == bojou == (noun) longing, yearning
敬慕 == keibo == (noun) love and respect




Bottom radical is 'heart/feelings' (心). Top radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'sun sinking among plants', which here acts phonetically to express 'seek'. Thus, 'seeking with the heart'. Henshall suggests taking the top radical as 'grass', 'sun' (日), and a variant of 'big' (大), and as a mnemonic: 'Big yearning in heart to lie on sunny grass.'
